when my youngest son was small we were sitting on the couch one night talking. i really don't remember what we were talking about. it's been a long time ago since he is grown w/a family of his own. out of the clear blue he says mom back during the civil did y'all have so & so. i couldn't help but laugh because he was serious. i told him son, u aren't going to believe this but mom wasn't even born when they had the war. do your kids think u are that old??lol

My kids say they did not ever think of me as particularly old person, like older than dirt. I never had that type of an experience.

Your son is cute in asking you that question. He might have forgotten that his mom is only 20 or a little more than that older than him. I have that impression also about my son. Though he is not married yet but he thinks that I am already an old woman as he keeps buying all those supplements for me which I don't really need as I am as tough as a bull. No old age body aches yet but maybe he thought I need those stuff to make me strong so I don't turn into a 'C'.

he may think you are old but he is sweet to care about u like that. i was 18 when i had my first son & 38 when i had my 2nd one. my oldest thought i was old so i was pretty sure my youngest would think i was ancient & he did. civil war makes u pretty ancient. lol. thanks for responding.
